NOTICE:  Due to a scheduling conflict, the Fire Marshal has rescheduled the test of the fire alarm system in the Dental School Administration Building and Clinic Building .  The new time for the alarm testing is Tuesday, June 30th, from 1:00PM to 2:00PM.  The fire alarm contractor will make an announcement to let building occupants know that the alarms are being tested and that evacuation will not be necessary during these tests.  The contractor will then activate fire alarm devices in the recently renovated auditoriums.  This will activate the fire alarm strobes and audible alarms (speakers and horns) throughout both buildings.  When testing has concluded, an announcement will be made notifying all occupants that testing is complete.  Because there are areas of the building that only have alarm horns, not speakers, some occupants may not hear the announcements.

 

NOTICE:  Over the 4th of July holiday, a contractor will be resurfacing the elevated walkway with a durable surface intended to last several years.  Consequently, access to the elevated walkway from the parking garage, the Lions/LSU Clinics Building, the Allied Health/Nursing Building, the Clinical Sciences Research Building , and the Medical Education Building will be closed from 6:00 PM on Thursday, July 2nd, through 6:00 PM on Sunday, July 5th.  The contractor will start removing the old walking surface on the walkway Wednesday morning, July 1st.  On Thursday morning, July 2nd, the contractor will start applying trim coating around the edges of the walkway.  These steps will not impede foot traffic or require closing the walkway.  On Thursday, July 2nd, at 6:00 PM, the contractor will close the walkway and commence application of the new walkway coating.

 

The Library in the Resource Center Building will close at noon on Thursday, July 2nd, and will reopen at 8:00 AM on Monday, July 6th.  Access to the Allied Health/Nursing Building and the Medical Education Building will be through the front door on the first floor of the respective buildings.  Access to the Resource Center Building for authorized Computer Services, Campus Police and Facilities personnel only will be through the loading dock.  Access to the Lions/LSU Clinics Building and the Clinical Sciences Research Building will be through the Lions/LSU Clinics Building's front door on the first floor.  The connecting bridge on the fifth floor of the Lions/LSU Clinics Building will provide access to the CSRB.
